REBECCA MORGAN | HOMECOMING
NOVEMBER 16 – DECEMBER 23, 2017
Opening Reception – Thursday November 16, 2017 | 5 – 7 PM
The Woskob Family Gallery is pleased to announce Homecoming, a solo exhibition by
Rebecca Morgan. Featuring ceramics, paintings, and works on paper by the Clearfield,
PA native, and spanning several years and bodies of work, the exhibition brings home
Morgan’s work, showing it close to where she grew up for the first time. Included are
portraits of the artist, her loved ones, and a cast of characters both naturalistic and
Through a range of media and stylistic conventions, Morgan explores her rural origins,
the inhabitants of her hometown, and the popularly held stereotypes about them. The
artist places herself both as part of and at a critical distance from her subjects.
Influenced by traditions as varied as Brueghel, face jug pottery, and Mad Comics, she
spans and conflates an array of divides including class, culture, geography, and politics.
Questioning who looks at whom—and from what point of view—Homecoming brings
to the forefront how the position from which something or someone is observed can
make other aspects invisible.
